place earlier this evening. they have been yelling obscenities at police officers while i've been here. you can see how many are in the crowd, probably a little hundred 100. take a look -- a little less than 100. investigators say plain-clothed officers and proffers were on patrol in the mission to try and prevent more deadly violence that happened nearly garfield square park over the weekend. two officers saw 2 men on 14th street who they thought were possible gang members. as the two officers approached them, one took off running, and one officer went after the suspect. during the pursuit, investigators say the suspect pulled out a machine pistol, known as a tech-nine, and pointed it at the officer. >> during the foot pursuit, the suspect pulled a weapon. we're not sure where he had it on his
person but he produced a weapon and turned toward the officer. the officer ordered the suspect to drop the weapon, the officer fired 2 shots fearing for his life. the suspect was struck by gun fire and he was subsequently transported to san francisco general hospital. at this point, his condition is described as nonlife threatening. >> reporter: it is not known if the suspect shot at the officer. police detained the other man. he is being questioned. it's still a very active scene, developing situation here. officers now in middle of the street patrolling the area for possible vandalism that these protestors may have caused here in san francisco. again, they're upset about the shooting that took place here this evening. >> reggie, we understand that all of this is affecting public transportation in the area. give us a sense of what's going on with that. >> reporter: well, we know a couple of muni buses have been
rerouted. the 14 and i believe the 49. yes, that's right. it looks like the scene has wrapped up here though. so apparently public transportation may not be impacted any ronger -- any longer. >> our crews will keeps updated. in san rafael, an elderly woman hurt when a vehicle plows into a restaurant. all of this happening while a farmer's market was going on nearby. the driver who was a vendor was not hurt. no word on any other possible criminal charges. a first for the bay area. tomorrow, nasa is sending the shuttle endeavor on a tour of the bayarea. it's going to be the -- bay area.
it's going to be the final flight as it moves to its home in los angeles. it will become part of a massive space exploration exhibit in la. nasa says we can expect a golden gate flyover some time after 9:30 in the morning. >> reporter: thursday afternoon, nasa delayed the space shuttle endeavor's plan to arrive here in the bay area by about an hour. they're hoping to get the shuttle here 9:30 in the morning. fog could make viewing difficult, so they decided to wait an extra hour. the shuttle riding atop a modified 747 is scheduled to take off from edwards airforce base friday morning. it will make a low-pass over sacramento then turn west over san francisco. we expect it here in
the bay area around 9:30 am. that could change on the weather and cloud conditions friday morning. it will make two loops around the bay that will include flyovers of the golden gate and bay bridges. it could be as low as 1,500 feet. then it will head south to make a pass over moffitt field. then it's onto los angeles >> and because of the shuttle flyover, there will be extra officers on bay area highways tomorrow morning. the chp is warning drivers not to get distracted by the endeavor flyover. they want drivers to pay attention to driving. they say even a 1-second distraction can cause injury. the chp says any driver who is seen slowing down to take pictures or sticking their head out of the window will get ticketed.
>> endeavor is coming from sacramento so if you're in the east bay and want to stay there, it should pass fairly close to walnut creek then loop around in the hayward area. the space and science center in the oakland hills will be open early to provide good views. basically, get yourself around the ocean, and the bay near the golden gate bridge, and you should be set. endeavor will pass over the bridge then expected to go out into the pacific just a little bit after headingly inland down the peninsula. that's why we're saying ocean beach is a good bet. nasa is saying coyote point in san mateo is a really good bet as is the bay land's nature preserve in palo alto, and moffitt field in mountain view. there will be an informal ceremony there that is open to the public.
>> it really does look like the weather is going to cooperate with us. we're not seeing a cloud in sight. not near the coastline, not offshore, nothing. so this is a live look from the bay bridge toll plaza. if we do see fog form, which the computer does suggest, it will be earlier in the morning closer to 4:00 to 6:00. and by 9:00, we'll be in the clear. the morning lows, temperatures in the low 50s for the bay shores. and san francisco, the coastline, a little chilly out there. but no fog really expected except for near the coast. we'll see the sunshine pretty quickly. temperatures warmer into the afternoon. >> and kron4 has awe covered if you -- has you covered if you don't venture out to see the shuttle yourself. you can watch continuing coverage of endeavor's last flight tomorrow morning on the kron4 morning news starting at 4:00 am. the bay area is just hours away from the release of apple's
